Octoberfest is Here!

Festival planner Octobrunerk is preparing for the upcoming beer festival, Octoberfest. He has invited the top three Brewmasters to Sanctum and Pandaemonium to come to the festival and promised a big reward to the one who can brew the best beer. While not persuaded by the the festival or the promise of reward, the Brewmasters were intrigued by the chance to compete against each other and determine once and for all whose beer is best. 


- How to Participate - 

Phase One: Harvesting Barley (October 7 to October 21)

During the event, you can speak to NPC Octobrunerk to receive a daily quest to collect 20 Fresh Barley which can be found in world and instance drops.

You'll be rewarded 1 Dried Barley and 5 Lite Beers for completing the quest. The Lite Beer will recover 5% of your Energy of Repose and the Dried Barley can be used at one of three Brewmasters to purchase a claim ticket. Spend your Dried Barley wisely, since the Brewmaster you choose will determine your rewards based on their ranking in the contest.

This daily quest is repeatable only during Phase One with a maximum of 14 claim tickets.


Phase Two: The Contest Winner (October 21 to November 4)

During  the three Brewmasters will now offer prizes in exchange for the claim tickets earned during Phase One. The prizes offered will differ based on their ranking and claim tickets can only be redeemed at the Brewmaster they came from originally. We recommend going with one Brewmaster to maximize your rewards.

Upgrade Arcade Fall 2015


Come one, come all, to the Upgrade Arcade! Try your luck by upgrading an on-screen weapon to the next level.  At certain Upgrade Levels, you will unlock different prizes including Stigma Bundles, Aether Glider wings, and the all-new Quick Frillneck mount!  Step right up! Don’t be shy – we’ll even give you a free try!

- How to Play -

The Upgrade Arcade can be accessed by clicking the smiling Shugo icon on the lower right corner of your screen. Use this icon to play, browse the prize list, or check out the Help guide.

To play, you’ll need an Arcade Token. One Arcade Token is consumed each time you begin playing at level 1, and will last until you claim a prize. This means it’s possible for you to get to Upgrade Level 8 on one token!

Click Play to start the mini-game and you'll see the weapon on the screen change before you. Subsequently by clicking Play, you will continue to upgrade the weapon and the Upgrade Level. There is a chance to fail at each upgrade level so play wisely!If you want to claim your prize, click Reward and a random item from the tier's prize list will be placed in your inventory.


If your upgrade fails at Upgrade Level 6 or higher, you have two choices. You can claim your level 1 prize, or you can click the Resume option to spend two tokens and regain your place! The Resume icon lights up to let you know it can be used, but can only be used once per play.

As you play the Upgrade Arcade, you will notice the Frenzy Meter filling up. Every token you use to play or resume will fill up the bar. Once the bar is full, Frenzy Mode begins and you have 90 seconds of boosted upgrade chances and additional Frenzy Rewards! Click away!


- Where to Get Arcade Tokens -

There are a few ways for you to get tokens for the Upgrade Arcade.

  1. A survey will be available for players level 30+ for (1) Arcade Token. One survey per server per account.
  2. Prestige Badge holders will receive an additional (2) Arcade Token via survey each week of the event.
  3. Arcade Tokens can also be purchased individually or as a bundle from the in-game shop or web store.


- Rewards -

The rewards can be viewed in the Upgrade Arcade menu and are distributed randomly from the upgrade tier you end on. Remember, you can claim your reward at any time. If you want that prize at Upgrade Level 6 without risking a failure on your next attempt, hit the Rewards button to claim it right away. Keep in mind that if your upgrade fails and you do not resume playing, through choice or lack of tokens, you will only get a prize from Upgrade Level 1.


Try your luck at the Upgrade Arcade! Mini-game ends October 21, 2015.
